LACY POOL was founded by German pianist Uwe Oberg. With an intriguing lineup with the Berlin-based clarinettist Rudi Mahall and
drummer Michael Griener, the band explores different styles in Steve Lacy’s music and Oberg’s originals. It’s a joyful celebration as well as an deconstruction, that transfers the Lacy’s compositions into the present.

from the liner notes:
„At every step, Lacy Pool finds new expressive possibilities in Lacy’s innate, albeit curiously tailored, logic. Their personalities replace
Lacy’s and change the way we hear this music, which is as it should be. The song may have inspired the players, but the players have
become the song.“ ART LANGE, CHICAGO, December 2008

SELECTED REVIEWS

On Lacy Pool, an intriguing lineup (piano-trombone-drums) revistist what might one day become standards – 10 compositions penned
by Steve Lacy. Uwe Oberg’s angular lines, Christof Thewes‘ soaring trombone and drummer Michael Griener’s clever support help
bring out the joy that inhabits those pieces. Their truculent nods at Dixieland or Thelonious Monk are a reminder of how both influences
informed the late soprano sax player’s development. They never get lost in a meditative state, because Oberg and company’s mood is
definetely more celebratory than mournful. To sum up, this is an excellent addition to the recent tributes paid to Lacy’s legacy that will
surely inspire more generations to come. DOWNBEAT, Dezember 2010 (pdf)

Great players, luminously entertaining album. MASSIMO RICCI, TOUCHING EXTREMES , Oct. 2010 (pdf)

Dig it! LE SON DU GRISLI, FRANCE 2010 (pdf, in French language)

LES DERNIÉRES NOUVELLES DU JAZZ, FRANCE 2010 (pdf, in French language)

Confirming that the music of a true original like Lacy is best celebrated by adding to it rather than copying, the three leap into the Lacy Pool
at the deep end. Accepting this challenge, they still manage an Olympic medal-like performance. KEN WAXMAN, March 2010 (pdf)

This refreshing and innovative, forward-thinking look on Steve Lacy’s music is imaginatively clever as it is delightful, a great idea
wrapped up in abstract ribbons and bows that should prove a satisfying listening experience, no matter your orientation with any
creative improvised modern music. ALL MUSIC GUIDE / MICHAEL G. NASTOS, Nov. 2009

The musicians form the right blend here. Featuring elements of wit and pathos, they stir the pot with blitzing unison choruses and
counterbalancing movements. Moreover, they morph some of Lacy’s familiar melodies into stately proclamations, while transforming
the sum of the moving parts into an unrestricting environment. They summon the best of many proposals.
ALL ABOUT JAZZ / GLENN ASTARTIA, Dec. 2009 (pdf)

Tim Gorbauch / Frankfurter Rundschau / Jan.2006:
Very energeticly, very exactly, with much feeling for the bulky expression of his music, that only exists with its opposite: its strength.
There is quickly an immense field of tension in the room, here the motivic form, to which the music returns again and again, there the
expansive, exploring approach. And finally Oberg and Thewes find some quite graceful, soft, almost weightless tones, you just have
to listen closely…. FRANKFURTER RUNDSCHAU / TIM GORBAUCH, 2006
